Recycle your old clothes and you'll help Ark

At midnight tonight, it's out with the old, and in with the new – and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is hoping that supporters will carry this spirit into 2018 to help the £5million fundraising campaign.

Ark is urging local people to make a resolution to recycle unwanted clothes and shoes in January in one of the charity's many branded recycling banks that are dotted in and around the Basingstoke area.

It's been 16 months since Ark became a charity partner with Bag It Up Ltd (BIU) – one of the UK’s leading clothing and textile recycling companies.

Thanks for your great support in 2017

It's been another year of great progress for Ark Cancer Centre Charity – and we are delighted to announce that £1.7million has now been raised towards the £5m target that will help to fund the new HHFT cancer treatment centre.

Book is final chapter in Sitting With Jane story

It was the most high-profile event in the Jane Austen 200 celebrations in Hampshire – and now a special souvenir book has been produced as a lasting memento of the Sitting With Jane project.

A Wild in Art event, delivered by Destination Basingstoke and in association with Festival Place, thousands of people enjoyed going around the Sitting With Jane public art BookBench trail between June 17 and August 30 – and the popularity of the benches, which celebrated the life of local author Jane Austen, was reflected in a very successful charity auction.
